Early summer finds cow Roosevelt elk and their calves grazing in a wet meadow just a few miles from the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Start at the interpretive facility. A series of panels tells about elk and the environment of the Dean Creek area. Use the spotting scope at the facility or your own binoculars or spotting scope to scan the area. You may spot elk anywhere throughout the meadows. They may be lying down, so do not neglect to carefully peruse the tall grass. The viewing area stretches almost 3 miles along the south side of the road, so be sure and drive its length. There are turnouts along the way where you can stop to watch. Morning and evening are the best viewing times, but elk may be out at any time of day.
